Premises Liability in New York

Hurt on Someone Else’s Property?

If you have been injured while on the property of another person due to the negligence of the owner or the company managing the property, you may have a premises liability case. A poorly maintained sidewalk, a badly lit parking garage, or any facility that is not properly maintained is the responsibility of the owner or manager. "Premises" can include a variety of locations, such as homes, office buildings, shopping centers, apartment buildings, hospitals, and schools.

We proudly represent victims throughout New York's five boroughs, including New York City, Manhattan, Brooklyn, Bronx, Queens, and Long Island.

Types of Premises Liability Claims

Some of the most common types of premises liability claims involve:

  • Trip or slip and fall accidents
  • Falls related to defective structures, stairs & walkways
  • Assaults or attacks on public premises
  • Dog bites & other animal attacks
  • Negligent snow removal & other unsafe conditions
  • Dangerous entrance ways and exits
  • Municipal liability for street and sidewalk defects
  • Construction-related accidents

Trip and fall and slip and fall accidents are the most common causes of injuries. Landlords and building owners also have an obligation to keep their building safe. If a crime occurs due to the negligence of the owner, landlord or building manager, they may be liable for that injury.

Why Timely Action Is Crucial to Your Case

An early and extensive investigation is key to a successful claim. Photographs must be secured before the condition is corrected. If a condition is caused by a structural defect, an engineer should visit the site in order to perform a proper investigation, measurements, and note lighting conditions. The defect may be related to a violation of an applicable state, town or city code.
